"After this I will return and will rebuild the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down; I will rebuild its ruins, and I will set it up; So that the rest of mankind may seek the LORD, even all the Gentiles who are called by My name, says the LORD who does all these things."
As we partner with God in building the house of prayer, it's easy to put the focus on ourselves. We think we need to work hard and try to accomplish things. More prayer, more meetings, lost sleep, music practice, trying to squeeze one more thing into our already busy lives... AAAGH!!!
But here's the thing. The LORD is the ONE who is raising up prayer and worship in every place (Malachi 1:11). Just stop and think about that. He has declared that He's going to do it, and He absolutely will. He will partner with us, if we're available, submissive and willing to do it His way. But the end result will be ENTIRELY His work, done with us and through Christ.
